The Training of America By BewareMouse

Thursday, January 30th, 2014

BewareMouse shared this post via CopBlock.org’s submit page as an entry for the Bitcoin-Fueled Content Contest.

When looking to the past and believing that all was well, I often wonder if I was simply ignoring what may have been wrong or if all was well indeed. In recent times the police and government actions have scared the willys out of those who have stumbled upon the agendas they have found. When these have been brought to the public’s attention they seem to lose something in the “All Is Well” mentality I once had myself.

I have spent time in the Army and know all to well the “Need To Know” concept that has kept our nation’s secrets for so long. By creating compartments of each subsystem, you can easily hide the creation of the most advanced fighting systems we have; the stealth bomber would be a good example.

Everyone involved worked within their field on a single electronic component or fabrication given to them, not ever knowing what the final product was. This is an excellent way to keep people completely in the dark and surprise the enemy with our new battlefield toys.

When the police train a horse for working on the street, they will subject the horse to an amazing amount of commotion on a regular basis to desensitize the horse as to think it is perfectly normal for gun shots to ring out, cars to suddenly turn over making all sorts of noise and horns to be blown for no reason the horse could understand. This is taken right to the stable and horns will be blown as the horse sleeps so these things are then ignored by the horse and the rider will not be thrown off at the first stoplight that an annoying driver failed to see the light turned green, The horse believes this is perfectly normal and just continues to ignore the problems before it.

But can this work for people?

The answer is “YES,” yes it can!

Well, for several years a prime time show called “Cops” has dominated the TV. This has had the same effect as the firecrackers tossed in the corner of the lot where the horse would be training. By exposing the public to how the police do their jobs and some excitement but not too much, they began the indoctrination of the American public to get used the idea of the flashing lights and getting clear of the official business the police seem to be on.

More and more reality shows began to flood the TV and cable channels. In fact, it’s hard to watch the famous MUSIC TV known as MTV and find a single music video any longer. One cat fighting show after another based on unreal ‘real life’ dramas, has become the norm for all too many shows and now in the homes as well. By these shows and making the most ridiculous arguments seem like something to disrupt the entire neighborhood and get the police called becomes perfectly normal. After all, the toilet paper should roll over the top, not hang off the bottom.

So we have an agenda hidden someplace that has made the most absurd problem into something that requires supervision or intervention. But what is it, so hidden? I am afraid looking at the components just like the stealth bomber will not tell you what the overall build may turn out to be.

The problem remains. Most people go on with life never realizing what may be assembled right in front of them or what the consequences of this may be until it is completely in place.

The constitution is the foundation of what we base all of our laws from. The idea behind it was to prevent exactly what had happened in Germany. Civil rights has been an ever changing and expanding concept. From our early days of slavery endorsed by the laws and supported by judges and court systems, to the woman’s rights movement, and then again in the 1960s with Rosa Parks refusing to sit in the back of the bus, the concept of equal rights has been an ever expanding and growing “protection” of the people.

In the 1960s, a different kind of law was adopted to ensure the rights everyone had fought so hard for, and so long to realize. This was the “Klu Klux Clan Act,” designed to remove corrupt elements of the government that refused to follow the new concept of equal rights. The laws were passed and given numbers as all the laws are given. The numbers given were 18 USC 241, 18 USC 242 and 18 USC 245.

They were criminal laws designed to put in jail those who refused the new rights that had been established. Counterparts were created for civil actions as well; this was 42 USC 1983, 42 USC 1984 and 42 USC 1986. The difference between criminal law and civil law is significant. In criminal law, you must prove beyond a shadow of a doubt the guilt of the accused. In civil law, you must have a preponderance of the evidence to show liability.

This has slowly blended in the courts to where preponderance of the evidence seems good enough to convict and imprison someone rather than beyond a shadow of doubt. The problem has been and continues as the civil system begins to make decisions based on shadows of doubt and allows liabilities to remain unchecked.

The biggest choke is placed on the “Klu Klux Clan Act” when, and if only, the Attorney General has the authority to charge an official with misconduct. This is a key point in enforcing the laws of the country. Prosecutors again and again have submitted charges for approval and have been turned down.

The key to making a change once again is to write, inform, and demand the actions of the government to follow the laws concerning the constitution. Only with the permission and ignorance of the public would such illicit laws and actions ever be allowed here in America.

Police Accountability Report: Episode 78 – LRN.fm

Monday, January 14th, 2013

This week, a couple stories that should cause anyone critically thinking to see that those wearing badges aren’t always operating with the best intentions.

Gangs or Cops — Or Do I Repeat Myself?
http://www.lewrockwell.com/blog/lewrw/archives/130090.html

Denver Police Officer Eric Sellers once choked an innocent pedestrian into unconsciousness while two other officers refused to intervene. This was an act of summary “street justice” imposed as a penalty for “contempt of cop”: The victim, a volunteer fire fighter named Jared Lunn, had been assaulted at a nearby club and had told Sellers that he wanted to press charges. When Sellers dismissively told Lunn to go home, the 21-year-old disgustedly muttered “Way to `protect and serve.’” Such impudence on the part of a Mundane simply can’t be tolerated.

A few weeks later, Sellers attacked a young man named John Crespin because the officer thought the kid acted “nosy.” Without cause or warrant, Sellers pulled up into the driveway of Crespin’s home and ordered him out of his car. When Crespin complied, his shoulder brushed lightly against the officer’s arm – an incidental contact that left Sellers feeling defiled.

So the officer seized the young man in a chokehold and spit a stream of obscenities in his face. After handcuffing Crespin, Sellers used his police baton to lift the young man a couple of feet from the ground, then dropped him face-first into the driveway. He then brutally beat him into a bloody, lumpy mess before charging him with “felony menacing.”

In March 2008, a disabled Iraq veteran named James Moore was nearly beaten to death on the sidewalk outside his apartment by a thugscrum of Denver officers. After being hog-tied, choked, and pummeled, Moore briefly flat-lined while he was being treated by EMTs.

The lead assailant was Officer Shawn Miller. Two days earlier, Miller and his partner severely beat a pedestrian named Jason Graber, leaving him with a broken knee and a permanent disability. Graber, alarmed over Miller’s reckless driving, had gesture for the officer to slow down. That prompted Miller to stop and treat the uppity Mundane to a dose of law and order.

During a November 2010 incident in a secure apartment building, Miller cursed at, browbeat, threatened, battered, and abducted a disabled woman named Doreen Salazar because of her perceived tardiness in buzzing him and his partner into the residential area. Security camera video shows Miller snarling at the small, middle-aged woman, pushing her, and cornering her near an elevator. He then slammed her face-first into the elevator door, handcuffed her, and held her in his patrol car for about ten minutes – a sadistic act that served no purpose other than to terrorize an uppity Mundane who had failed to respect Miller’s supposed authority.

Neither Sellers nor Miller, nor dozens of other Denver cops who routinely commit violent crimes against the innocent, has ever been punished.

A few weeks ago, Denver’s Police Union – which, in the face of fierce competition, has distinguished itself as one of the most corrupt, arrogant, and petulant in the country – erected a billboard to protest what it considers improper changes in the city’s all-but-nonexistent police disciplinary system.
“Gangs or Cops – Which Would You Rather Have On Your Streets?” asks the billboard, as if the question dealt with a significant material distinction.

The case for not giving police officers guns

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012

Giving cops guns creates situations where lethal weapons are used when they otherwise never would have been. Civilian rights have been abused many times, and thanks to the modern age and Youtube and video cameras, that is UNDENIABLE. The system needs to change. Maybe taking their guns away is not the right way, but the way things are happening right now is not okay either. The police have becoming a self-serving monstrosity with no place in our society, and I don’t know about you, but it scares the crap out of me. Next thing I know the police are going to be going for the Jews and no one is going to stop them then either. The situation that has developed in this country has created a terrible modern precedent for the suppression of free speech and the freedom of its citizens. Only those to stupid to realize not to fear the police don’t, and that is not right.

 All these cops beating on kids need to have resigned when they got ordered into those situations, their oath is to protect and serve, not shoot to kill anyone that their orders tell them is the enemy. Its real nice having a big gun to kill the enemy with, but suddenly the enemy is a bunch of college kids and out of work people who have been wronged by a social system that has failed them, the old man next door, the war veteran, the citizen trying to walk to work.

Police violence will only push moderates and conservatives to sympathize with the movements like Copblock.org. People that would otherwise have maintained their support of the police turn on the television and see armed and armored police thugs with taped-over badge numbers and blacked-out helmet visors beating up people in the streets with batons, shooting at them with gas grenades and rubber bullets and in general stomping on anyone that gets in their way. Stories are abound of people just caught in the crossfire at these events.

Taking away a police officers means of killing someone might hinder them in situations where actual aggressors come at them, but I don’t think that they’ll have a problem putting someone like that down with a rubber bullet instead of a metal one. They do it in England, don’t they? Officers will develop a new mentality, one in which they will know that their equipment kit does not involve an item that can kill someone. Maybe leaving them a few shotgun shells in the trunk for a backup would do the trick. 

It’s all about mentality. Once people get used to a certain system they get comfortable in it. They resist change. The police in this country are used to walking around with a gun. They have grown used to it. They are comfortable with the fact that they might have to kill someone at any point. CHANGE that equation and they will yell and complain that we are hampering their ability to be tactical, but it’s all just a knee-jerk reaction to the change. The numbers will speak for themselves. Cops will not start getting killed more overnight. Things will remain much as they are, but at least innocent people will not get killed anymore. That would be the only real change from taking guns away from thugs with badges.

Pushed by Cop, Sent to Jail

Monday, March 26th, 2012

Someone passed this video along via the submission tab (the email was a dud), so I added a intro/outro and posted it to CopBlock.org’s YouTube. I found the text below by clicking the link in the original video, posted here.

There’s some that would pat the cops on the back for being over dramatic assholes. They think its ok for cops to do whatever they like and justify any actions made by officers as, that’s what keeps them going home to their families. Protecting their partner and asking questions later. Which sometimes I know can be the case that cops have to take certain measures to protect themselves.

That isn’t the case in this video shot last night. And yes I know, your might say, well what was the whole story? There’s got to be some reason those officers were on high alert like that! But, in my opinion, whatever the situation at hand before becomes irrelevant after the cop pushes the guy away. They obviously weren’t trying to arrest these particular individuals. The guy talking to the cop before the push looks like he had been there for quite awhile talking to the cop with his arms folded when the push took place. Now I could care less about the cop pushing him. After the officer pushed him away which seems a bit drastic, he went back to writing in his journal immediately. That to me doesn’t warrant the other officer to arrest him thereafter in my opinion. But he does……dramatically.Whats your take on it?

Always film the police, or any government official for that matter.

For those interested, the “Featured Content of the Month” contest will be starting April 1st – this could have been a great submission for the CopBlocking category – click the banner below for more details.

PoliceOne.com’s 2011 book list: Recommended reading for cops

Tuesday, December 27th, 2011

As 2011 winds to an end, Policeone.com’s Senior Editor, (“I shoot stuff and I read stuff”) Doug Wyllie has published his annual book list of recommended reading for cops.

1. BEAUTIFUL LIFE by Robyn Walensky, a book on the Casey Anthony case and trial.

2. TELL TO WIN by Peter Gruber. Wyllie writes:

“I recently received my copy from Amazon and just from perusing the inside front jacket I’m pretty sure I’m going to love this book. It says, in part, ‘Historically, stories have always been igniters of action, moving people to do things. But only recently has it become clear that purposeful stories — those created with a specific mission in mind — are absolutely essential in persuading others to support a vision, dream, or cause.’”

Ironic, right?

3. A cop’s book list wouldn’t be complete without Tom Clancy: LOCKED ON

4. Another Clancy book: AGAINST ALL ENEMIES

5. John Weisman’s KILL BIN LADEN is, according to Wyllie, “a riveting read.”

Apparently, Wyllie enjoys getting high while reading:

“reading a heart-pounding adventure can, at certain times and in certain people, trigger the release of endorphins which are known to reduce stress, arrest the sensation of pain, and actually lead to feelings of euphoria. So, in my constant quest for this natural high, in spring of this year I happily found a series of four books by Brett Battles. I began with:”

6. THE CLEANER (2008), moved quickly to

7. THE DECEIVED (2009), then on to

8. SHADOW OF BETRAYAL (2010), and

9. THE SILENCED (2011).

And what would a holiday list of recommended books be without sniper novel titles like:

10. KILL ZONE

11. DEAD SHOT

12. CLEAN KILL, and

13. ACT OF TREASON

Wyllie describes these last four as “awesome fun.”

He goes on with:

14. THE GIFT OF FEAR by Gavin de Becker

15. Rounding out Wyllie’s recommended list is an instructional book: BUILDING A BETTER GUNFIGHTER by Wyllie’s PoliceOne colleague Dick Fairburn.

16. BLOOD LESSONS by another friend of Wyllie’s Chuck Remsberg, which is described as stories of “the life-and-death struggle between cops and bad guys.”

A clear psychological profile emerges of Mr. Wyllie from his reading list. Obviously, Wyllie sees the world as cops (the good guys) against everyone else (the bad guys) and he seems to relish books on violent death.

Alternatively, I would suggest the following books for Mr Wyllie and other cops:

1. STOLEN LIVES: KILLED BY LAW ENFORCEMENT
2. POLICE MISCONDUCT IN AMERICA by Dean J. Champion
3. ABOVE THE LAW: POLICE AND THE EXCESSIVE USE OF FORCE by Jerome H. Skolnick and James J. Fyfe
4. THE POLITICS OF FORCE: MEDIA AND THE CONSTRUCTION OF POLICE BRUTALITY by Regina G. Lawrence
5. POLICE BRUTALITY edited by Jill Nelson
6. OUR ENEMIES IN BLUE: POLICE AND POWER IN AMERICA by Kristian Williams
7. GO DIRECTLY TO JAIL: THE CRIMINALIZATION OF ALMOST EVERYTHING edited by Gene Healy
8. THREE FELONIES A DAY: HOW THE FEDS TARGET THE INNOCENT by Harvey A. Silvergate\
9. ARBITRARY JUSTICE: THE POWER OF THE AMERICAN PROSECUTOR by Angela Davis
10. THE TYRANNY OF GOOD INTENTIONS: HOW PROSECUTORS AND LAW ENFORCEMENT ARE TRAMPLING THE CONSTITUTION by Paul Craig Roberts and Lawrence M. Stratton

My final recommendation would be THE ORIGINS OF TOTALITARIANISM by Hannah Arendt.

CopBlock.org Welcomes Larken Rose

Wednesday, April 6th, 2011

Greetings, readers of CopBlock. Based on the fine work that the guys here are doing, trying to expose and reverse  CopBlock.org Welcomes Larken Rosethe police state lunacy that now infects this land, I’ve agreed to become a regular contributor to this web site.

 

Some of you might know me from my “adventures” with the federal extortion racket (IRS, DOJ, etc.), and some might know me from my books (“How To Be a Successful Tyrant,” “The Iron Web,” etc.). But my focus here will revolve mainly around the real-world effects of the most dangerous superstition: the belief in “authority”–which happens to be the focus of my latest book.

Let me begin by saying this: “Fascists are people too.” The bad news is, people in power (cops, legislators, judges, etc.) are usually morally confused, completely brainwashed, delusional and psychologically messed up people, and are often personally sadistic, vindictive and malicious. The good news is that understanding what makes would-be masters tick can show us how to minimize the damage they do to humanity–and maybe even occasionally convert one or two back into rational human beings.

And I mean exactly that. Those who imagine themselves to be agents of ”authority” are irrational and deluded, and incapable of seeing reality as it is. They live their lives in a perpetual hallucination, imagining a world where they have the right to rule, and where the rest of us are morally obligated to grovel at their feet. They do not view themselves as mere mortals, but as part of a superhuman entity which is exempt from basic morality. Sadly, many of their VICTIMS share in this delusion.

But I’m getting a bit ahead of myself. Rather than trying to give a comprehensive treatise here on the psychoses of “government” enforcers, I’ll be writing articles now and then about real-world examples of oppression via “authority,” addressing how and why they happen, and how we might be able to STOP them from happening. After all, while screaming ”fascist pig!” is fun, it takes a bit more than that to create a fascist-free world. So we’ll play doctor, analyzing the causes of, and the remedies for, the societal disease known as tyranny. (And occasionally scream “fascist pig!” along the way.)
